Stop in front of the Welcome Center on Clark Street and you will be welcomed to Mystic Falls, Virginia as well as Sparta, Mississippi from the "Heat of the Night." Before this past Christmas you could have stopped by the filming of Dolly Parton's "Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love" and been in Sevierville, Tennessee.
